We booked a King room very last minute with the Roosevelt (we had booked a different hotel and upon arrival -- it was horrible. Therefore, had to make a move immediately).
The Roosevelt saved our trip and we were so happy they were able to accommodate us!! The hotel is beautiful, swanky and comfortable (loved the bed). The staff is consistently friendly, smiling and helpful. The room size was perfect for our needs, clean and upscale. Nicely decorated and a beautiful bathroom (loved the shower too). Location for us was perfect - can walk easily to just about anywhere (but far enough away from most noise generated on Bourbon St).
We enjoyed the pool and hot-tub. Enjoyed the restaurants and hotel bar. Loved the John Besh restaurant - I thought it was delish so we went twice!
Here are my only critiques - our room faced Canal St and we were on the 14th floor. This street can generate a lot of noise from horns beeping, ambulances etc. all day and night (but it didn't ruin our time). Also, once we checked into the Roosevelt - they wouldn't let us into our room until 7pm. This was a little annoying but we were flexible about it. -- But when we requested a late check out, they weren't willing to accommodate us on this .... of which, I didn't think was too fair.
I will definitely stay at this hotel again in the future!! I feel it would actually be my first choice!!
